Easy, Quick & Vegan Mashed Potatoes

I posted this recipe on Facebook after making it last night ... and received a request to post it here as well, for future reference.

So ... LWE ... this one's for you!

8 or so red "new" potatoes, roughly chopped into quarters
Tbsp grapeseed oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup (approximately) of vegetable broth
Salt and pepper to taste


Fill a saucepan with enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, cover and leave them alone for approximately 20 minutes, or until potatoes are soft enough to easily pierce with a fork.

Drain potatoes and return to saucepan.

Add remaining ingredients (other than salt and pepper), mash using a potato masher (you can probably even just use a fork).

Add salt and pepper to taste.

M&MM Modifications:
- For babies 6-9 months, you can warm a little vegetable broth and give them that. For older babies, pull out a potato when soft, let it cool while you're finishing the mashed potatoes and add a little veggie broth.
- For toddlers, if you want to give them some more texture (i.e. food to play with), try giving them some of the potatoes before they're completely mashed. Odds are, they'll love playing with the chunks! Just make sure they're small enough to prevent choking.
